“Looking for the best way to clean various areas and objects around your home? The answer may be right in your own mouth every morning. The toothbrush is one of the most underrated cleaning supplies ever, and since you’re supposed to get a new one every few months, why not put your old ones to good use? Check out the marvelous ways toothbrushes can spruce up your home.
- Tile Stain Remover
When tile stains have you down, your trusty toothbrush can come to the rescue. Stains that get into the porous tile surface can often be scrubbed away with a cleaning solution, a toothbrush, and a bit of elbow grease.
Bleach or hydrogen peroxide is usually sufficient, even for tough stains. For deep, difficult stains, you might need to use diluted muriatic acid. It’s often used by professionals, but be careful — you must ventilate the area and wear a mask, eye protection, and heavy gloves when using this harsh chemical.
- Grout Scrubber
Speaking of tile, what about that pesky grout buildup? Scrubbing away dirt, mildew, and other grime from your grout can instantly give a room a refreshed look. With grout, a thick paste works best for getting into every groove between the tiles.
Combine hydrogen peroxide and baking soda to make a powerful combination. Apply it to the grout and let it sit for a few minutes before you take up your toothbrush for some serious scrubbing action.
- Bathroom Buddy
The bathroom is full of those hard-to-reach places that can drive you crazy when you’re trying to clean. Keep an old toothbrush handy to clean up faucets, drains, toilet seat hinges, and other small spots. Apply your usual bathroom cleaning products to scrub away built-up grime. Or, you can use a paste of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide on especially tricky areas.” To read the entire article click here.
